Rent College Textbooks? Yes, Please!

With Amanda approaching college days (way too quickly, mind you), we have been searching for ways to save money.  She has applied for and won several scholarships, but it is still crazy expensive.

When I heard that you can now rent college textbooks as opposed to buying them, we immediately bookmarked the site for future use.  How cool is it that you can rent a book, as easily as you can rent a movie!? When she's done with the class, she won't have to worry about selling the book back for a fraction of the price that she paid for it.  She can just return it using the free shipping label and rent another one.  Plus, she won't have to run around to different book stores looking for books.  She can just search the site, find the book she needs and click rent. 

Campus Book Rentals has over 3,000 titles to choose from and several different majors (such as Nursing, History, Accounting, etc)., plus free shipping...this has to be the smartest decision ever! You can even use a highlighter in your rental books.  With Campus Book Rentals, there are no membership fees and you can track your books while you wait for them to be delivered.  They also buy books and will give you a fast, instant price quote, plus a shipping label.

Since finding out about renting textbooks, we now have one less thing to worry about when Amanda goes to college. 

*Disclosure - I will receive a coupon code for 50% off Amanda's first sememter of college text books for this review.  The opinions herein are my own and were not influenced by Campus Book Rentals.
